SonoCheck provides immediate feedback that cavitation has occurred. SonoCheck will change color during a typical cycle when the ultrasonic cleaner is supplying sufficient energy and conditions are correct. Problems such as insufficient energy, overloading, water level, improper temperature and degassing will increase the time needed for the color change. In the case of major problems, the SonoCheck will not change color at all.
